Quickly as taxi nnd rail could nc

One Into afternoon Ethel, Martha
and Martha's sister, Grace, set out In
great glee for n snll. The water was
unusually rough and added joy to the
three. It was a day of mishaps. When
down the bay a considerable distance,
they discovered that they had no
matches, a dangerous thing since their
erratic engine nlways made proble

They signaled a passing boat and

Further down the bay onco again to
their consternation they discovered
the rowbont JUrtlng with the waves,
and once more they retraced their
path. "I'll fasten It so It can't get
separated this time," promised Ethel.
As though It sympathized with their
hardships, this time the engine stnrted
at once, nnd apparently they were
bonked for a good trip from then on.
They enjoyed to tho full riding tho
ungry waves and were elated that
they, nlono, evidently had braved this
the heaviest sea of the summer. Ex
cept for n mighty ship just ahead of
them, .apparently anchored, not n boat
was to be seen.
"What Is that boat?" asked Martha.

Then came n deafening silence I Tho

"Now, Miss Gloom, we won't drift;

Over went tho anchor, nnd down
went Ethel on bended knee Imploring
"Sammy" to wako up, while sho
worked. But nil her efforts wero un

over the water. "In trouble?"
